    Cons

    - Business initiatives and top-down authority always take priority over technical debt, architecture fixes, and "building this properly", leading to massive amounts of operational pain without any end in sight. - Business and technical teams are fairly silo'd in most organizations, causing friction when it comes to delivery "deadlines" as well as requirements, since business does not respect the technical team enough...

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your engineering needs over your business needs; your engineers can help you innovate just as much as your business team can - but only if they're not stressing about the constant terrible-ness of their operations load.

    "Amazon Fresh Associate"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Amazon Fresh Associate in Bellevue, WA

      I worked at Amazon part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Decent Pay Lots of time off

      Cons

      Forced to work in a 30 degree refrigerator Mind numbingly tedious tasks Your work productivity is determined by a rate which is over simplified.

      Advice to Management

      Provide better gloves to workers so their hands aren't freezing cold. The hand warmers are decent but not enough. Switch employees between warm and cold locations more frequently.

      Pros

      Benefits are great, especially for an entry level position. Pay is above average for the kind of job it is.
